By: Yossel Gittelis (Yid). This is in response to Howard Kleinhendler’s article, stating that now that Obama won the election, we need to just accept it and move on and compromise with him. He also couldn’t miss the opportunity to call of us who voted for Romney “extremist right-wingers.”
If only the Dems felt like that too. Remember that Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid said just a week before the election that if Romney wins, Senate Democrats will not work with him, and will instead block everything. And the sad thing is that you would have supported them, because you agree with their positions.
But us conservatives, we don’t behave that way. Yes, we will work as much as possible and compromise. We accept that this is the new reality. But the question is, Mr. Kleinhendler, why do YOU want this reality??
Yes, we accept reality. Obama won, and ObamaCare is here to stay. Just wait for ObamaCare to be fully implemented, and all the new taxes to kick in, and you will see millions being laid off all across the country. My own boss said that he will probably have to fire 50% of the company, and the other 50% will have to be part time instead of full time, just to save the company from all the new ObamaCare taxes that are going to put him out of business.
Yes, we accept reality. Obama is here for the next four years. There will be a unilateral Palestinian state within the next two years, and Israel will be blamed for the lack of peace. Israel will attack Iran alone, without the blessing of the United States. In fact, the US will condemn Israel. And then when Iran retaliates against US interests, Americans will take it out on US Jews, and the atmosphere in the country, led by the Obama Administration, will be that its “the Jews fault”. I don’t want to even contemplate the various scenarios.
Yes, we accept reality. Obama is here for the next four years. In the last four years, food stamps use in Lakewood DOUBLED (because the Obama Admin raised the income limits to be eligible). And the welfare state will expand even more. The Obama Administration will be adding even more people to the welfare rolls, and there will be even less of an incentive to work for a living.
How many people do you know, Mr. Kleinhendler, who are getting close to $60,000 per year in government benefits and programs? I know of many. And they all tell me the same thing: :Why should I work? I will lose $60,000 in government programs, and I will only earn $30,000 as a starting salary?”
Is this the future of America? Chronic poverty and dependence on government? The loss of any desire to get out there and start businesses or get jobs? Yes, we accept that this is the new reality, but my question to you Mr. KLeinhendler is, WHY DO YOU WANT THIS REALITY?
And will there even be any more jobs if someone decided to defy the norm and actually try to work for their own money instead of taking from others? Who is hiring? On Jan 1, 2013, (in less than two months) the largest tax increase in the history of America will go into effect, with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, and the implementation of all the new ObamaCare taxes. Companies will have lots of new reasons to lay off workers, why would anyone hire workers in this environment?
Yes, this is the new reality. We accept that this is the new reality. In fact, we will NOT riot, unlike Obama’s supporters who threatened to riot if Romney won.
But do YOU accept this new reality, Mr. Kleinhendler? Is this the new America that you envision? Do you really think your grandchildren will be successful in America in thirty years?
The fiscal cliff is coming. The debt ceiling is coming. The more we borrow, the more we are forcing our grandchildren to pay back all this debt. But will we even last that long? I don’t think so. We will look like Greece very soon. Sooner than you think.
And yes, Mr. Kleinhendler, we are facing this reality with the understanding that there is nothing further we can do about it. We tried, but the takers overwhelmed the givers. The givers will fade away, and the takers will rule this country for a long, long time, until there is nothing more to take.
